And I am not taking about the 2o,ooo dead and broken soldiers from the Iraq war. That's another story.
We shouldn’t be balancing the budget on the backs of veterans which is what Bush and Co. wanna do. How patriotic is that?
But that's not all. According to the Air Force Times:
The number of veterans waiting for their first medical appointment in the veterans’ health care system has doubled in the last year. Since 2004, the number of newly eligible people waiting for appointments has increased by 400 percent.If you ask someone to fight--and die--for you, then shouldn't you be willing to take care of their health care needs when they come back home?
